The Gardener's Weed Book
Pardon me for tooting my own horn, but if you think all weeds look alike, check into The Gardener's Weed Book by Barbara Pleasant (Storey Publishing, 1996; $13 paper or $19 hardcover). Detailed drawings and thorough coverage of earth-safe controls make this book a great addition to any gardener's library.
